SUMMER COLLEGE LEAGUES
TOP PROSPECT RANKINGS, 2010

Over the course of the next several days, PG Crosschecker will identify the top prospects that played in the nation’s leading summer college leagues in 2010. Through personal observation, contact with scouts and input from league managers, we’ll focus on those players who have the greatest chance to succeed at the next level—and beyond.

The depth of prospect information provided will vary according to the relative strength of each league, and to a lesser degree the number of teams in the league. In the Cape Cod League alone, we’ll rank the top 100 prospects. In all, we’ll identify more than 600 prospects.

We’ll provide information on each league in three stages. Initially, we’ll provide a raw list (and relevant biographical information) on the top prospects in each league (LIST on chart below). Then we’ll follow with mini scouting reports (M-SR) on each player. Our final, more comprehensive instalment will provide full scouting reports (F-SR) on all the prospects, along with a thorough overview of each league. We’ll add that more detailed information over the course of the next 2-6 weeks. All the information will be available to PG Crosschecker Insider-level subscribers. Please click here for subscriber information.

Concurrent with our comprehensive summer-league coverage, we’ll also be providing thorough follow lists of the top college, junior-college and high-school prospects in the Draft Classes of 2011, 2012 and 2013. We’ll break out all the top prospects in each class, and provide the most complete state-by-state follow lists available anywhere.

As an overview to our summer coverage, we’ll provide a link to each league’s top prospect lists and identify the No. 1 prospect in each league. Each item on the accompanying chart will be underscored/linked as it becomes available. The number of players we’ve ranked in each league is noted. We’ve also grouped each league into four tiers, based on the relative degree of professional-level talent in each league. You can also link to each league’s official website for more complete information on the 2010 season.
